10 TV Shows To Watch This Autumn

I love getting all cosy on an autumn evening and watching TV shows or a film so in today's post, I’m talking about 10 TV shows to add to your watch list this Autumn. Because I’m writing this in late October, I’ve purposely chosen TV shows that have a creepy/dark vibe or dark comedy theme and I’ve made sure to cover multiple streaming channels including free-to-use ones such as All4 and iPlayer. I was supposed to have posted this earlier in October, but time ran away with me, so yeah, if you like creepy, dark or psychological dramas or a dark comedy, this one is for you! 

House of The Dragon 

Set 172 years before Game of Thrones, House of The Dragon follows the Targaryen family in their prime. King Viserys and Queen Aemma have their fearsome dragons, their healthy, teenage daughter Rhaenyra and a new baby on the way. The first episode follows Viserys holding a tournament for the new arrival which he’s obviously hoping is a boy, an heir to his throne, however, his tyrant brother Daemon who believes he’s the heir to the throne arrives at Kings Landing for the tournament and things soon start to take a turn. There are quite a lot of time jumps throughout the 10 episodes but I’m guessing they did it just in case it wasn’t picked up for a second series (which it has been btw). But I think they did it well and I would 100% recommend it if you are of fan of Game of Thrones. You also don’t need to have watched GoT to enjoy House of The Dragon really. Available on Sky Max/Now TV. 

Dead To Me

After her husband is killed in a tragic hit and run, Jen, a real estate agent from Laguna Beach is trying to find her feet in the world again, whilst obsessively looking for the car and person that killed her husband and father to her two boys. Whilst at a grief support group, that she doesn’t really want to attend, she meets Judy who is basically the polar opposite of Jen, she’s really friendly, and caring and views everything with a positive outlook. They unexpectedly become friends and help guide each other through each of their losses and personal life struggles. I really wish more people talked about this show because it’s honestly so good. It’s a classic dark comedy with a lot of gripping twists and turns and each episode is only around 30 minutes so it’s easy to binge-watch. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Netflix. The final season is coming out in November. 

Only Murders in the Building 

I recently watched Only Murders in the Building after seeing and hearing so many people rave about it. It’s about three strangers who live in the same apartment building on the Upper West Side who find out that they all are a fan of true crime and listen to the same true crime podcast. This happens when they are kicked out of the apartment building due to a fire alarm and when they return, a suspicious death has occurred. The police quickly say it’s a suicide but the three strangers think differently as things just don’t seem to add up so they decide to team up and investigate the death together whilst also finding out more about each other in the process. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Disney+


The series follows the suave Lucifer Morningstar, yes the Devil himself, who has abandoned his duties in Hell after becoming bored of the role and has made the move to LA where he runs a nightclub called Lux. He accidentally becomes involved in a murder investigation after someone he knows dies. He meets Detective Chloe Decker and helps with the case using his powers to manipulate humans into revealing their secrets. He enjoys helping to solve the case and he soon finds out that his usual charms and manipulative powers don’t work on the Detective which makes him intrigued, so when she invites him to be a Consultant to the LAPD, he jumps at the chance. He’s also very open about being The Devil throughout the show however because he’s in LA, everyone just thinks he’s either completely mad or just messing around and playing a character which makes it even funnier. All seasons are available on Netflix. 

Wedding Season 

Comedy crime drama Wedding Season flashes backwards and forwards a lot throughout the show but it follows Stefan, a hopeless romantic who is besotted with the mysterious, bride-to-be Katie who he met during a wedding and has been having an affair with during the summer. His friends think he’s completely bonkers and that she’s a bit strange and secretive but he doesn’t care. In the present day, two months after they met, on the day of Katie’s wedding, Stefan bursts into the room declaring his love for Katie, which is quickly brushed off by Katie and he’s removed from the wedding. However, the next thing you know her new husband and his entire family are murdered and the police think Stefan did it, Stefan thinks Katie did it and Katie is adamant that she’s been set up. They both go on the run together across the UK and USA to find out the truth about the murders and to prove their innocence. Available on Disney+ 

Orphan Black

It’s been years since I watched Orphan Black but I noticed that it’s been added to All4 recently and I’m planning on rewatching it soon because it’s such a good show and it deserved a lot more hype when it was airing. There’s also a spin-off coming out next year which I’m looking forward to watching. 

Orphan Black starts with the main character Sarah Manning, a British con artist living in Toronto who unfortunately witnesses a suicide, she then quickly realises that the woman appears to be her doppelgänger. Sarah then goes on to steal Beth Child’s identity along with her occupation as a police detective. At first, she takes Beth’s identity with the intention of taking Beth’s money but she then gets wrapped up in Beth’s world and the reason why she appears to be her doppelgänger. I don’t really want to say much more about it because I don’t want to spoil it but give it a watch if you’re into sci-fi dramas that have a lot of ‘what the hell is going on’ moments. Currently on All4. 

Unsolved Mysteries 

A reboot of the 80s/90s classic, Unsolved Mysteries is basically what it says on the tin. It’s a show about real-life unsolved cases and it covers everything from disappearances, murders and paranormal encounters such as UFOs, ghosts and Big Foot. The show interviews detectives, lawyers, family and friends, journalists and witnesses all of which have their own theories in mind. They also have a ‘tip line’ available at the end of each episode where people can get in touch if they know anything which might be useful to help solve the case. Some of the cases from previous seasons have had some updates, although unfortunately none have been officially solved yet. Volumes 1 and 2 are available on Netflix. Volume 3 is currently being released weekly over the course of 3 weeks on Netflix. 

Am I Being Unreasonable?

Am I Being Unreasonable? is actually the last TV show I finished watching as I’m writing this and it’s such a good comedy thriller which is done in a clever way. Daisy May Cooper stars as the main character Nic who feels trapped in her life. She’s in an unhappy marriage, has no mum friends and she’s grieving a big loss that she can’t really express without revealing a big secret. She then goes on to meet a new mum called Jen who has recently moved to town with her son and they quickly become friends and as they get closer it leads to both of them bringing up their history and almost revealing secrets that they both feel should be left in the past. Available on iPlayer. 


If you’ve already watched Lucifer and you liked the whole supernatural being working in law enforcement plot then I’m pretty sure you’ll like Grimm. It’s inspired by Grimm’s Fairy Tales and follows a homicide investigator called Nick Burkhardt who finds out whilst working on a case that he’s a Grimm and that he’s from a long family line of Grimms. A Grimm is a guardian who is in charge of keeping the balance between humanity and the Wesen, who are mythical creatures of the world, the Wesen usually appear to be normal humans, however, with Nick becoming a Grimm he sees the ‘real version’ of them whilst everyone around him obviously can’t. This obviously proves to be difficult when he’s a homicide detective. Some episodes can be quite dark and creepy but there’s also a lot of comedy within the show too. Available on Sky Max/Now TV. 

The Great 

The Great is described as a dark comedy and an ‘occasionally true story' and it’s about Catherine The Great and her arranged marriage to Peter The III of Russia however she ends up getting tangled up in wanting to change the politics of Russia which is run by men and the women have no say at all and she also becomes the target of a lot of gossip in and out of court. Her marriage to Peter is instantly a bad one because of how he treats her, the court and Russia in general so she plans to get rid of him so she can take the throne herself as she knows she could do better. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Lionsgate+ (through Prime Video).
